This coming Saturday (12th March) I’ll be at a small local event in Wallsend Library, Anime Go! which is being hosted by North Tyneside Libraries! It’s the first event of it’s kind and definitely the first “official” event I’ve ever seen in Wallsend, so it should be a nice little starter. Hopefully from this weekend lots more will be popping up!
I’ll be there presenting a Cosplay Talk at 11am, and then the Cosplay Contest at 12:30pm! The talk will cover different topics within Cosplay, starting with Getting Involved in Cosplay and then Making and Buying Costumes, but there should be pointers and tips for people of all skill levels, not just beginners, and the contest is just a bit of fun on the day. If you’re going to be there, come along and say hi!
Since the event is small and local I decided to revamp one of my older costumes for the day – Taruto from Magical Nyan Nyan Taruto! She’s not a very well known character, but I wanted something cute and simple to wear for the day and this was perfect. Above you can see the work on the wig and tail – I made the tail using acrylic wool/yarn, and it’s turned out great!
I can’t wait to put the whole costume together once it’s finished, and hopefully get some nice photos at the event!
